P - Drew Pomeranz - $47 vs TB - The Rays have struck out a league high 25.7% vs lefties on the year. They've scored just 2.5 runs per game over their last 6 games. And Pomeranz has the 3rd highest SO-BB% on the day at 17.4%.
P - Cole Hamels - $48 vs SEA - Hamels has been amazing in the 2nd half of the season with a xFIP of 3.27. His las 2 games he's scored 42, and 39 fantasy points. He's locked in.
C - Manny Pina - $7 vs STL - Pina has been great in a small sample size, at home, and against right handers. I like Gary Sanchez too, but he is $27 dollars. I'll save $20 for a stud later.
1B - Steve Pearce - $9 vs TOR - Pearce is near the minimum salary, hitting high in the order, and crushes lefties. This should be a high scoring game, and for the BvP crowd: Pearce has absolutely owned J.A. Happ, with 4 homers in 25 at bats. He has a .541 wOBA and .560 ISO for Happ. Sign me up.
2B - Punt - I'll be looking for a $7 guy once lineups come out to fill out this lineup. If you've got the cash, I like Ian Kinsler @ $11, Dustin Pedroia @ $18, and Jose Altuve @ $20.
3B - Matt Carpenter - $14 @ MIL - Carpenter crushes righties, and is simply too cheap today. He'll leadoff in a high scoring Cardinals lineup.
SS - Xander Bogaerts - $13 vs TB - Also on team 'Too Cheap' is Bogaerts. The Red Sox have one of the highest projected run totals on the day and Bogaerts should slot into the 2 hole.
OF - Mookie Betts - $25 vs TB - Betts has 15 hits over his last 8 games. He's proven that he can win fantasy tournaments almost by himself. Lock him in!
OF - J.D. Martinez - $23 vs CWS - He faces off against Anthony Ranaudo and the terrible White Sox bullpen. Ranaudo has given up 6 home runs in only 19.2 innings this year. Martinez could be in for a double dong day!
OF - Jarrett Parker - $7 vs ARI - Parker was recently called back up to the Giants. He got the start Sunday and put up 18 fantasy points. The lefty has crushed righties when given the opportunity this year.
Bonus OF - Brandon Guyer - $12 vs MIN
Stack of the Day: - Detroit Tigers
